After All This Time

After all this time
I can't believe you're still here
Standing in front of me
Catching my tears

After all this time
And all the words that I said
You're sitting beside me
At the foot of my bed

After all this time
You've hidden your pain
Joked as we danced
Through the pouring rain

After all this time
When you needed me most
I came up with excuses
And drifted away like a ghost

After all this time
I pushed you away
Kept you at arm's length
All because I was afraid

After all this time
I've finally seen the truth
You're not just some fool
Or passing goof

After all this time
I now understand
You looked at me, saying
"I want to be your man"

After all this time
You whispered those three words
The ones that broke through
And saved me from the hurt

After all this time
I finally took your hand
And I know it's with you
That I forever want stand

After all this time
I whispered the words
You'd been saying all along
I just never heard

"I love you."
